1st Peer-to-Peer Phone Sharing App Launches on iPhone & Android

Hotel My Phone launches phone sharing between friends to message and call with your number, when you can’t access your phone

Hotel My Phone

Montreal, Quebec – December 11, 2014 – Today PPLCONNECT launches its latest new app, Hotel My Phone, for iPhone and Android, the first peer-to-peer phone sharing solution. This fresh new concept is set to change the conventions of how people communicate.

Like Airbnb for your smartphone, Hotel My Phone presents a new approach to short-term phone borrowing and ensures you never have to worry about your battery dying or forgetting your phone again.

The Hotel My Phone app lets you borrow a friend’s phone to temporarily check-in to yours, when you forget your phone or your battery dies. Users, who securely check-in to a smartphone hotel, can instantly see their phone contacts, send/receive their text messages and make phone calls, all with their regular phone number.

As Hotel My Phone Co-Founder, Jenviev Azzolin, states:

“We all know people in our close network of friends and family who regularly forget their phone or suffer from a dead phone battery. By installing Hotel My Phone, you and your close network mutually benefit from the added security of always being able to reach one another.”

Denzil D’Sa, Hotel My Phone Co-Founder, adds:

“When a user checks-in to a friend’s smartphone hotel, their session is secured and only active for a 4 hour period maximum. This means, users can check-in to a friend’s app, text and call with their number, and then log out, while keeping both the guest and the host’s information secured and confidential.”

Hotel My Phone makes peer-to-peer phone sharing fun, easy and secured, for close friends to text and call with their regular number from a friend’s app, when they forget their phone or their battery is dead. Some services may differ based on users’ operating system.

Hotel My Phone

Hotel My Phone is the only peer-to-peer phone sharing solution for friends, which lets you message and call with your regular phone number from a friend’s app, when you forget your phone or your battery dies. Hotel My Phone is available now on the App Store and Google Play. Some services may differ based on users’ operating system, details available here. To use Hotel My Phone, both the host and guest, must download and install the app in order to mutually benefit and check-in on each other’s app.

With Hotel My Phone’s expansion into iOS, this marks a significant step in PPLCONNECT’s core mission to empower users to communicate in the multi‐device and multi‐OS environment we live in today.
